A SMALL CASE FOR THE CREATOR AND CREATION
Genesis 1 :1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
I am under no delusions that this will appeal to any who consider themselves educated and/or a part of academia, either secularly or theologically, for I’m neither. However, I do believe that I will appeal to those who have common sense and general intelligence on either side of this topic.
A news report I was just watching, showed a war plane of some sort, in flight (purported to be a Russian Jet, but this is of no consequence for the topic of this article) dropping one of two bombs.
Please try to follow my line -----------> of thinking and not just the words.
What was holding this bomb in place was what looked like (in very layman terms) mechanical fingers. I imagine that the release is one of two buttons (unless it’s now voice command).
I also imagine that there were tests conducted to ensure that the particular release operated as created and programmed. That is, that one button didn’t unexpectedly operate the drop for the two. I also imagine these tests took place before they had bombs attached, and then with expected weight load minus the warhead. I Imagine in flight tests took place without (and then with) detonations. I presume there is a reasonable expectation the “drop button" doesn’t operate the jets or the ejection seats.
Everything within that jet has to operate as expected; together, separate, and yet simultaneously! I can’t imagine all of the past and present minds (and math, uhh!) it took to bring the technology to this point, nor can I fathom all of the and sciences it takes, operating separately and how they operate together.
These things, this creation of the jet fighters, did not happen by chance, nor did the systems evolve to be able to work together simply because there was a need for them to do so. It began in the mind. It took thought, purpose and desire. It takes minds that have been educated in particular fields and even more higher educations in very specific fields, like physics and then jet propulsion, for examples.
This puts me in mind of the field of Robotics. This is a HUGE field! From medical to home usage, to military and everything in between and beyond. Then there is artificial intelligence. An altogether separate field of study, that seems to require the most intelligent of minds and billions of dollars of investments to help toward the creation of a future self aware artificial intelligence, or AI.
Yet, I personally have yet to hear of a perfect autonomous A.I.
Besides Man. AN A.I. INTELLIGENCE WILL NOT HAPPEN BY CHANCE nor can it happen without significant, personal and financial investment.
Our lives and functions didn't just once, nor did it happen just once, twice or thrice, but BILLIONS upon BILLIONS of times in the history of Man!
Our body systems are designed to all work together: Integumentary (the organ system that protects the body from various kinds of damage, such as loss of water or abrasion from outside. The system comprises the skin and its appendages (including hair, scales, feathers, hooves, and nails), Muscular, Skeletal, Nervous, Circulatory, Lymphatic, Respiratory, Endocrine, Urinary/excretory, Reproductive, Digestive (some scientists add the immune system to this list to make a total of 12 organ systems). These all work separate of one another and yet together. I sit, look and contemplate what all works together just when I touch the tips of my pointer finger and thumb to touch.
Not to mention that we have a mental and spiritual (although some might disagree with the latter) consciousness and awareness whereby we desire (for the most part) to communicate and understand the people around us, our environment and causes many of us to seek out our creator. Add to that, how all of nature is designed to work together to support different forms of life, from the oxygen levels, how trees give off what we need to survive and we breath out what they need, the way and the time it takes the Earth to revolve around the Sun, to the time it takes and how it rotates on it’s own axis, on and on it goes!
There are scientific laws in place. Like our own moral (and yes, spiritual) laws that are in place, they would seem to require intent, reason and purpose to maintain this very specific type of order. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN BY CHANCE!
I believe there is a reason why we don’t have the authors of the books of the Bible try to convince their readers of the existence of God. How do you foolishly try to prove the obvious?
